xmount allows you to convert on-the-fly between multiple input and output harddisk image types. xmount creates a virtual file system using FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) that contains a virtual representation of the input image. The virtual representation can be in raw DD, VirtualBox's virtual disk file format or in VmWare's VMDK file format. Input images can be raw DD, EWF (Expert Witness Compression Format) or AFF (Advanced Forensic Format) files. In addition, xmount also supports virtual write access to the output files that is redirected to a cache file. This makes it possible to boot acquired harddisk images using QEMU, KVM, VirtualBox, VmWare or alike.

Apple Safari is the default web browser included with Mac OS X.

Locations

The Safari browser uses different locations to store different kind of information.

The user directory:

On MacOS-X

/Users/$USER/Library/Safari/

On Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari\

On Windows 7

C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Safari\

The cache directory:

On MacOS-X

/Users/$USER/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari/

On Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari\

On Windows 7

C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\Safari\

History

The browser history is stored in a binary plist file named History.plist in the user directory.

This file can be viewed directly in Mac OS X by opening file in the Property List Editor program.

For each web site, the program records the URL visited, the date and time of the last visit, and the number of times the site has been visited.

The date and time values are stored as a floating point value containing the number of seconds since Jan 1, 2001 00:00:00 UTC.

On a Windows PC History.plist file can be opened in Oxygen Forensic Plist Viewer software.

The downloads history can also be found in the user directory in a binary plist file named Downloads.plist.

Cache

The Safari cache is stored in Cache.db in the cache directory.

This file uses the SQLite database format.
